Talking Drum 


The Talking Drum’s ability to imitate the tonal sound of language has made it superior to any of those drums that existed before it. It was purposefully invented to send messages. Since it can talk and sing, that is how it became a musical instrument. Today, the Talking drum is still used for communication. It is used to tell the history of the past, to teach people how to cope with the present and how to prepare for the future. Perhaps what makes the Talking Drum a unique drum is its ability to adapt to the tone of any musical instruments; I mean musical instruments of the universe.
